hand with oddity


Last week our 13 year old granddaughter was visiting. She was showing an interest in my hand-with-object scanning work and I invited her to “model” for me. We chose an odd object made of glazed clay, probably a little pottery studio glaze test piece of her mother’s. Like some of my stones, it has long been in residence on my windowsill beside this desk, inside a flowerpot.

I have been revisiting my past posts of ‘horizontal hands’ to refresh my memory on what I have previously done. I am still toying with the idea of making more related prints but smaller than the Hands series which I completed almost a year ago. Curiously, my friend Olga was just asking about the horizontals in my previous post, so I promised to post links to them here:

hand with tissue
hand with Easter eggs
hand with twine (third image)
hand studies

Below are other scans of our granddaughters’ hands:
